Plot of the number of splittings as a function of total CDS length. Estimated splitting (open circle) is from GRFP simulation with different CDS lengths (Table 1) and fits with a linear function (solid line) shown in equation (10). The observed splitting (closed circle) is also plot. Species are Arabidopsis thaliana (A), Bos taurus (B), Sus scrofa (C), Drosophila melanogaster (D), Danio rerio (F), Gallus gallus (G) Homo sapiens (H), Mus musculus (M), Oryza sativa (O), Pan troglodytes (P), Rattus norvegicus (R), Sorghum bicolor (S), Caenorhabditis elegans (W), and Zea mays (Z).
